What better way to glorify the season than to join the Mediaeval Baebes for a remarkable evening of music, dance and theatre.
Escorting you through a musical journey inspired by a time when poetry and music conspired to invoke sensory pleasure, the Mediaeval Baebes will be performing Christmas carol classics from their top ten album Of Kings & Angels, the haunting and uplifting title theme for TV’s Victoria and other contemporary and traditional songs.
The Christmas Carol Tour will enchant audiences with a unique take on early music, traditional culture and the magic of folklore as they tread the fine line between classical and contemporary music.
Seeing the Mediaeval Baebes perform their Christmas Carol show in a mediaeval setting is the ultimate Christmas experience, so harness the true spirit of Christmas and immerse your senses into a timeless treat of unique musical beauty.
Tickets are now available from www.mediaevalbaebes.com and SEE tickets, £25 each.
Doors open at 7.30pm. The concert begins at 8pm, with a break for a short interval, and closes at 10pm.
The Mediaeval Baebes formed in 1996, when a group of friends broke into a north London cemetery and sang together, clad in flowing white gowns and crowns of ivy.
They have had three albums in the top of the classical charts and their contribution to the BBC production of The Virgin Queen resulted in a deserved Ivor Novello Award for best television soundtrack.
They currently provide the title track for the ITV series Victoria and they are also shown performing in series two, which is now on air.
Earlier this year this haunting and uplifting title theme earned them two coveted Emmy nominations for Outstanding Music Composition for a Series and the Original Main Title Theme Music, which was composed by Martin Phipps.
They have performed before enthusiastic audiences in the UK, United States, Canada, Asia and Europe in venues ranging from castles and caves to nightclubs and Renaissance Fayres.
They have toured with Jools Holland and played at the Royal Albert Hall, Carnglaze Caverns in Cornwall, Jersey Opera House, Tewkesbury Abbey, supported Michael Flatley in Hyde Park and performed at the legendary Lilith Fair in USA.
The Mediaeval Baebes are: Katharine Blake, musical director, vocals and violin; Sophie Ramsay, vocals and violin; Josephine Ravenheart, vocals; Marie Findlay, vocals; Sophia Halberstam, vocals; Anna Pool, vocals; and Kathleen Ross, vocals, Viola da Gamba.
